Martin Bean: Hi, I'm Martin Bean, vice chancellor here at RMIT. Well, you've made it. All that study has paid off, and you're now an RMIT student. We're here to help you get ready for life and work. That means learning from some of the best minds around. But it also means new friends, new experiences, and new skills. Join a club. Become a volunteer. Join a sports team. Study overseas. So welcome to RMIT, and the time of your life.
Jacinta: There's such, yeah, like certain sense of fast pace energy and excitement, being in the city. And it's got that really like contemporary, modern feel, where I feel like some unis don't have that.
Jacinta: They're kind of the old scholars kind of feel, whereas RMIT is really, you feel like you're part of something big and something that's like changing and going to influence the future and stuff, I guess.
Jacinta: It's not like there's one building that is RMIT. There's little studio spaces and buildings everywhere around the city. It's spread out like crazy.
Declan: Yeah. In high school, you're sort of told, "You have to do this by that time," and that's just, it's set in stone, and the teacher's on your back all the time. In uni, it's a lot more flexible, but it's on you. So I guess it's like a thing of taking more responsibility for yourself, and a part of growing up, I suppose.
Jacinta: Yeah. But I guess the thing that comes with that is the fact that everyone that's here wants to be here.
Jacinta: Like, so you meet so many passionate, motivated people that are into what you're into. So it's always easier to like find friends and get involved and stuff, because yeah, everyone's just as enthusiastic as you are. I went to a different uni before I came here, and I felt like I really prefer the atmosphere here, just because it's so much more easy to get involved and that warm community kind of feel. Like through RMIT, like I found a whole new group of friends. I've gotten an internship. I've got causal employment through like CareerHub. They can help you with that kind of thing as well. If you take what uni has to offer, you can just really make the most of it.
Declan: I was very daunted my first day, and even to the second week, I was still a little bit nervous coming into lectures and tutorial classes. But it just fades away.
